Fred Bemrose, of Paris, will receive a Lieutenant Governor’s Ontario Heritage Award for Lifetime Achievement this month.
Brant County Council will recognize these lifetime contributions at its February 17th meeting.
Also that night, Hank Hedges, Enid Horning and Marion Sheridan will receive Ontario Heritage Trust recognition certificates and achievement pins for their heritage work.
If you can attend to show your appreciation that would be great.
Here is some background on the awards from the Lieutenant Governor’s website:
LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR’S ONTARIO HERITAGE AWARDS
The Honourable James K. Bartleman established these awards in 2007, in partnership with the Ontario Heritage Trust, to recognize outstanding volunteer contributions to the preservation of Ontario’s heritage. The Lieutenant Governor’s Ontario Heritage Award for Lifetime Achievement, awarded through a special category in the Trust’s Heritage Community Recognition Program, recognizes individuals who have made sustained volunteer contributions to preserving, protecting and promoting community heritage over a period of 25 years or more. The Lieutenant Governor’s Ontario Heritage Award for Youth Achievement, awarded through the Trust’s annual Young Heritage Leaders program, recognizes the most exceptional youth group in each of the built, cultural and natural heritage nomination categories, and the most outstanding individual nominee across all categories.
